Appropriate Insanity – Italian Food and New Zealand Wine
No Rules Wine and Food Pairing
We believe that your eyes and tastebuds don’t lie. When you see food you like, you want it. And you want it with wine you like. If that happens to be Italian food and New Zealand wine, we call that “Appropriate Insanity”; aka #appropriateinsanity.
Wine lifestyle expert Jessica Altieri from Wine Channel TV gives you a great holiday pairing with Villa Maria Estate Cellar Selection Pinot Noir and a handcrafted artisan salumi dish from Chef John Coletta from Quartino
The Villa Maria Cellar Selection Pinot Noir wine originates from selected vineyards in the Awatere and Southern valleys of Marlborough made to reflect the individuality of their sites. A fragrant bouquet of red and dark cherries, red berry fruit and subtle spice notes, this wine is concentrated and juicy. From the winemaker: “A perfumed bouquet of red and dark cherries, plums and spice notes. Fruit driven and elegant, with long layers of flavour, full-bodied and well-balanced with fine, grainy tannins. This wine is concentrated and rich – an elegant Pinot Noir with finesse and complexity. This wine can be enjoyed now but with careful cellaring will continue to develop for another five to eight years.”
